Goal : AC Milan CEO Adriano Galliani has reiterated that Maxi Lopez’s proposed move to San Siro will not go through as the club is solely focused on signing Carlos Tevez, while at the same time declaring that Alexandre Pato will not be joining Paris Saint-Germain.
The Rossoneri had reached an agreement with Catania to bring Lopez to the Giuseppe Meazza next month, but the deal became dependent on the outcome of the club’s pursuit of Tevez.
Galliani hoped to have the Tevez situation resolved already, but he is now willing to wait until the end of the January transfer window to thrash out at deal with the forward’s current employers, Manchester City.
Out of courtesy, though, he is not prepared to leave both Lopez and Catania in limbo until then.
“We gave up on the deal [for Lopez],” Galliani told Milan Channel. “Catania and the player behaved well but we cannot keep other teams and players on standby while we wait for Tevez.”
